uring 2008, some of the only signs of economic life were in #Healthcare. That fall, our founder Skip Rodenbush read the book, Crushing It, a book about how great #entrepreneurs build their business through social networking. The next day he launched the LinkedIn group, Telemedicine Everywhere, with the notion that #telemedicine and #virtualcare had the responsibility, not the potential― the responsibility, to improve outcomes, deliver healthcare to the underserved, and reduce costs throughout our healthcare system.

After growing to over 1300 members, Skip transformed the LinkedIn group into what we know today as Healthcare Hive

From Skip:

The future depends on working together to bring about a systemic change to transform healthcare into what it should be. Many of you asked, so we listened and took our Linkedin Group and evolved it to something bigger and better.

This community will bring proven virtual care solutions that can be immediately deployed and scaled.

Why I started the Healthcare Hive:

During the 2009 trought of the Depression, the only signs of economic life were in Healthcare. That fall, I met Gary Vaynerchuk, author of Crushing It, a book about how great entrepreneurs build their business through social networking. The next day I launched the Linkedin Group, Telemedicine Everywhere, with the notion that telemedicine and virtual care had the responsibility, not the potential― the responsibility, to improve outcomes, deliver healthcare to the underserved, and reduce costs throughout our healthcare system.

The group has organically grown to over 1300 members, many of whom have been engaged from the early days. Your dedication is what brought us to where we are today.

Thank you for sticking around…. the best is yet to come.

Let me quickly take you back to 2013. The year I met the founder of Zoom, Eric Yuan, and introduced Zoom’s first major healthcare opportunity. At that time, I was fortunate to become Eric's healthcare advisor and was anxious to share Zoom’s Version 1.0 capabilities to the healthcare industry. The dream of the healthcare hive was born in 2014, as I secured the Healthcare Hive domain.

Please visit and engage with the Hive, as you have graciously done with the Linkedin Group. There is no hive without its bees.
